RFE: How about supporting UTF-8-MAC encode in libiconv?

As you know, UTF-8-MAC encoding (aka, UTF-8 Normalization Form D) is being mainly used in OSX's filesystem.

Apple's iconv can handle this encoding, but MacPorts' (original) one lacks this feature. This is an inconvenience to me.

For example, in Japanese, some characters (e.g. kana with voiced sound) are encoded in NFD. Since MacPorts' libiconv fails to handle filenames which contain these characters correctly, I have to use Apple's (UTF-8-MAC capable) libiconv instead.

In my view, MacPorts' iconv also should support this encode for user convenience.
